I don't think we loose anything.  If I am reading the spec correctly 
for the JCR, we actually gain.  Instead of dictating the storage 
mechanism we can easily give a choice.  We can give a default storage 
mechanism (I would say the filesystem because everyone already has 
it) but if someone wants to replace that with a database or anything 
else they can.  We gain a lot of flexibility that allows the 
application to be small and compact for a personal application, but 
the scalability that will make it a viable enterprise option.

+1, if you are convinced that a RESTful interface is the way to 
go.  I am mostly convinced it is a good way to go because there are 
large portions of the project that are already done if we go that 
way.  As with your question above: do we lose anything by going with 
a RESTful interface?  I haven't thought of anything and since I can't 
disprove it....
